Speed of Light

London-based art and design practice United Visual Artist, recently presented a series of light installation titled ‘Speed of Light’. The project was commissioned by Virgin media to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Broadband in the UK.


Speed of Light project was installed in the Victorian Bargehouse on London’s South bank and made use of 148 lasers spread across six rooms.

UVA used the beam of light that travels along optical fibers as the starting point for the piece.

Among the pieces created, UVA crafted a small sitting area that features a sofa, table and television screen made completely from laser beams.
